The Healing Power of Soup

Broccoli & Carrot Soup

The healing power of soup: something that both scientists and grandmothers can agree on. From helping you lose weight to warming you up from the inside out to boosting your immunity, soup is a winter staple that you shouldn’t be without.

An ancient Chinese proverb states that a good doctor uses food first, then resorts to medicine. A healing soup can be your first step in maintaining your health and preventing illness. The therapeutic value of soup comes from the ease with which your body can assimilate the nutrients from the ingredients, which have been broken down by simmering.

Here’s a great and very tasty hand selected recipe from the 1 week detox program. High in all the good stuff your body needs and none of the junk. If you’re making soup and I’m around throw a little jalepeno in there for me would you?

Ingredients (Try and Use Organic as Much as Possible)

  • 2 cups room temperature water
  • 1 whole broccoli bunch
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 whole roma tomato or 3 compari tomatoes
  • 1 celery rib
  • 2 shallots/spring onions
  • 1/3 zucchini
  • 1-2 handfuls  raw cashews
  • 1 gluten free veggie bouillon cube or a teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

Optional

  • 1 small slice ginger (with peel)
  • 1 clove garlic (with peel)
  • 1/4 jalapeno or chili (with stem and seeds)

Method

  1. Put all the ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  2. Select Variable 1. Turn the machine on and slowly increase the speed to 10, then to High.
  3. Use tamper to press the ingredients into the blades if required.
  4. Blend for 4-6 minutes or until soup reaches desired temperature.

Notes

If using hot water run for only 1-2 minutes.
Raw Foodists like to only heat their soup to about 45 degrees so no enzymes are lost.
This recipe can be reduced by half and made in small containers.
